This week’s roundup of accessories includes a new kit from Bose that lets kids build their own wireless speakers. Read on!
The ChargeUp Digital Portable Power Bank ($80 MSRP) is a 10,000mAh portable charger with dual USB ports, letting you charge two iOS devices at once. And it’s portable: Not much thicker than a credit card, it’s easily stowed while you’re on the go.
Here One ($299 MSRP) is a “truly wireless listening system” containing two earbuds—you’ll also have to download a compatible app—that lets you “stream music, take phone calls, reduce unwanted noise, amplify speech, access Siri and Google Now, and more.” Here One is available for pre-order now, and is scheduled to ship by the holiday season.
The Wood Mushroom Car USB Charger ($40 MSRP) is an “ultra portable” single-port charger designed to be used with your car’s power outlet. It charges most smartphones and tablets.
Bob (available for a $17 pledge on Kickstarter) offers a desktop spot to store your iPhone, your glasses and, as the makers say “your bits and bobs.” The project is already funded, but you have until July 20 to get in before the crowdfunding stage expires.
The forthcoming AirJamz ($45 MSRP) includes a guitar pick and wristband; used together with the forthcoming AirJamz app, you can use your iPad to play “guitar riffs, power chords and other iconic instruments.” The device ships in August.
